About YSC

In 1998, a group of young women, all diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40, gathered in New York City and had the first YSC meeting. They had all personally experienced that young adults were missing from the research, community and conversations about breast cancer. More than twenty years later, these needs still define YSC’s work. 

Unlike their older counterparts - who are overwhelmingly integrated into the design of clinical trials -  young adults diagnosed with breast cancer face higher mortality rates, fertility issues and the possibility and ramifications of early menopause. 

From our grassroots beginning, YSC has grown into an international movement. Today, YSC has more than 170 Face 2 Face local networking groups,  a vibrant online community, and the largest conference program dedicated exclusively to young adults with breast cancer and their caregivers. YSC also produces free educational resources, such as our navigator series, which are comprehensive guidebooks that address every phase of treatment and survivorship. Visit to learn more.
